I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and studied at the University of Wisconsin — Madison, receiving a doctorate in physics, with a minor in art, in 1996. I studied painting, drawing and printmaking in the UW-Madison graduate art program, mostly withJack Damer, Richard Long andDavid H. Becker.
Since 2015 I have maintained a regular studio practice focusing on figurative art based on observation and imagination. This effort has involved some re-training, mostly in the form of workshops at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts withAndrew S. Conklin,Stephen Assael, and Larry Paulsen.
